R E I* O K T 



OF THE 



Selectmen and Assessors, 



SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL-HOUSES. 

The estimates of the School Committee for the coming 
year will require for Schools, 817000 ; School-houses, $1000 ; 
School-books and supplies, $1000. The increased appropria- 
tion for Schools is required to lap over till March meeting, 
as the teachers are to be paid monthly hereafter. This extra 
is only for this year. In order to provide for the completion 
of the Ballard Vale School-house the unexpended balance 
of the appropriation for said building must be carried over, 
or re-appropriated. 

PAY OF TOWN 0FFICEKS. 

A larger appropriation will be required for -the payment of 
Town Officers than last year. The Water Commissioners 
being chosen at a special Town meeting, no provision was 
made to pay them, hence two years' salary will be required, 
The decennial valuation of the Town the present year will 
also require extra expense. The Selectmen therefore recom- 
mend an appropriation of $8000. 

TOWN HOUSE. 

The proposed changes in the Town House will demand a 
larger appropriation for the coming year. If the Post-Office. 



45 

as is now anticipated, occupy the lower Town Hall, and the 
present Post-Office room be fitted for town offices, extra 
expense will be incurred. We also recommend that the 
Town House be heated by steam. If this is not done, and 
the new arrangement above indicated is carried into effect, 
it will be necessary to run nine portable stoves, besides the 
furnaces in the cellar. The danger from fire would be 
much increased, as will be readily seen. The furnaces are 
in need of extensive repairs, or else being replaced by new 
and larger ones. We believe the time has come for a 
change. We therefore ask for an appropriation of 82500 
for the purposes indicated. 

EIRE DEPARTMENT. 
The Engineers ask for 82500 for running expenses. 

HIGHWAYS BRIDGES AND SIDEWALKS. 

The present system of repairing our Highways through 
Highway Surveyers can no longer exist : the law of 1890 
requiring the Selectmen to appoint a Superintendent of 
Streets if the Town refuses to elect Road Commissioners. 
Whichever way the Town may determine at its annual 
meeting, the usual amount of money will be required to 
keep the ways in passable condition. If permanent im- 
provement is desired, a larger sum will be required. We 
recommend an appropriation of 88000 for this purpose, and 
for Sidewalks #1000. 

REMOVING SNOW. 

It will not be prudent to appropriate less than $800 
for this purpose. 

HIGHWAY HORSES. 

Under this head, in another part of the Report, the figures 
speak for themselves. The horses have paid for their keeping, 
and earned enough besides to purchase a new sled and liar- 



46 

ness to the amount of $175. This department is now in 
excellent condition, being thoroughly equipped to do road 
work for a number of years to come. The use of the horses 
and driver was given to Surveyor C. W. Hayward, in ad- 
dition to his share of the highway money, when not wanted 
for fire purposes. During the winter, when not otherwise 
employed, they have been kept at work building a sidewalk 
between the West church and Frye Village, an improvement 
long needed. We ask for $1200 for support of horses and 
pay of driver. 

STEEET LIGHTING. 

The Committee on Street Lighting recommend an increased 
appropriation for this department, to meet the demand for 
more light. $3500 is asked for. 

PRINTING AND STATIONERY. 

$1000 will be required, in view of the additional amount 
of printing to be done the coming year. 

STATE AID. 

Whatever is paid under this head is re-imbursed by the 
State. $1400 will be needed. 

MILITARY AID. 

The appropriation for 1889 was overdrawn, therefore we 
ask for a larger amount — $900. 

MEMORIAL DAY. 
An appropriation of $200 is asked for. 

INSURANCE. 
We think an appropriation of $300 will meet expenses. 



47 

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY. 

The Committee think $200 will he sufficient, with the 
avails of the sales of lots and grass. 

HAY SCALES. 
The usual sum of #50 will he sufficient. 

SHADE TREES. 
We recommend $100, as last year, for this purpose. 

STATE AND COUNTY TAXES. 

We can only estimate the amount needed for these pur- 
poses. The State Tax last year was §5820.00 ; and County 
Tax, #5864.41. We recommend $6000 for State, and $6000 
for County Taxes the coming year. 

DISCOUNT ON TAXES. 

The appropriation needed can only be estimated by the 
amount the Town votes to raise by taxation. On the basis 
of last year, $3500 will be required. 

ABATEMENT AND REMISSION OF TAXES. 
$400 will be sufficient for these purposes. 

INTEREST ON NOTES AND FUNDS. 

Of this appropriation $1296 is yearly paid as interest on the 
Memorial Hall and Old Proprietors' permanent Funds, for 
which the Town is liable. To meet the interest on the 
Water Bonds will require $5000. We believe an appropria- 
tion of $7000 will be needed for all purposes. 



48 

WATERWOKKS. 

The Water Commissioners ask for $3000 for running 
expenses, and $5000 for Service-pipe. We therefore recom- 
mend the appropriation of S8000 on Waterworks account. 

SUIT AGAINST THE TOWN. 

A man named Peter Harrison, residing on Maple Avenue, 
has brought a suit against the Town to recover $2000 for 
alleged injuries resulting from falling into a little trench 
around one of the trees on Elm Street, made by the con- 
tractor who was removing them. We are advised that the 
Town is probably not liable, and the injury was not serious. 

MISCELLANEOUS, 

Unforeseen contingencies are liable to arise, requiring ex- 
penditure of money, to meet which this appropriation is 
made. The appropriation for 1889 was insufficient. We 
advise the appropriation of $1500 for 1890.

JOHN S. STARK, J °f Poor - 



Overseers' Report. 



The condition of the Almshouse Department remains nearly 
the same as it was one year ago. The buildings are in ex- 
cellent repair, and the farm is well improved. 

We quote the following from the Visitation Reports of the 
State Board of Health, Lunacy, and Charity : 

" Andover has an Almshouse of brick two stories high, 
with a basement, heated by steam. It contains good bath- 
rooms, has hot and cold water carried over the house, a 
chapel on the second floor, and is in every respect well built 
and well appointed. It is a model of neatness, and is well 
supplied with bedding. Every part of it was found in perfect 
order, and there appears to be a friendly eeling between the 
officers and the inmates. The inmates were seen at supper ; 
their food was good and abundant, and they were well clothed. 
The farm contains seventy-five acres." 

The Town can rest assured that its poor and its property 
will be well cared for while Mr. and Mrs. Allen remain in 
charge. 

The income from the farm has considerably increased over 
that of 1888, reducing the cost per capita to $1 .78 for the 
past year. 

While the personal property at the Almshouse is in as 
good condition as heretofore, we have thought it best to 
reduce the valuation of household furniture, clothing, farm- 
tools, etc., the values of such articles being less than in 
former years. 

The increased expenditure in "Relief Outside" depart- 
ment was largely caused by the operation of the Indigent 
Soldier and Sailor Act of 1889. 



56 

The Town is now supporting eight persons in Lunatic 
Hospitals, at large expense. We have seriously considered 
the subject, and think it advisable to remove several of the 
mildly insane to the Almshouse, thereby saving considerable 
expense. This change will require a small expenditure to 
render secure the rooms to he occupied by them. 

Only a small appropriation w T ill be required for repairs 
the ensuing year. 

The " tramp nuisance " is a varying quantity. 89-> of 
these homeless wanderers were harbored at the House in 
1S35, 1157 in 1886, 1353 in 1887, 1076 in 1888, 1225 in 
1889. Superintendent Allen is careful not to hold out to 
them extra inducements in the line of entertainment.

OP THE 



Fire Department. 



To the Board of Selectmen : 

Gentlemen, — In compliance with the regulation of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following report. 

The force of the Department consists of five engineers, 
twenty-two members of Andover Steamer, No. 1, and B- F. 
Smith, Hook and ladder truck, and sixteen members of J. P. 
Bradlee Steamer No. 2. 

The apparatus chnsists of two third class steam fire engines, 
one hand engine, with hose carriages for each, one horse 
four-wheeled hose-carriage, one hook and ladder truck and 
one supply wagon. 

In the Department there are forty-nine hundred feet of 
hose in good condition. The Fire alarm connecting the two 
engine houses is in good condition. 

During the past year there have been five alarms of fire 
as follows : 

Brush fire on town land, High St. 
May 2. Brush fire on land of A. T. Clark, Ballard Vale. 
June 19. Cornelius Moynihan's house, Main St. 
Oct. 19. Tailor shop of P. J. Hannon, Main St. 
Nov. 11. Brush fire, Ballard Vale. 

* The waterworks have been turned over to the Water Com- 
missioners.

the past year, and although, in the opinion of many, one 
man may not be sufficient for the protection of the property 
situated within the limits of the large amount of territory 
to be patrolled, yet, with the assistance of the Chief of Police, 
who is on duty till ten o'clock every night, and on special 
occasions as late as required, I think that the Town property 
is amply protected, and the strictest order preserved. 

The illegal sale of liquor is decreasing every year, and 
will, in my opinion, be entirely stopped if the present system 
continues in force. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE F. CHEEVER, 

Chief of Police.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, with the statement of the receipts and expenditures 
for the year ending Feb. 3d. 1890. 

During the past year a portion of the wall lias been pointed. 
The walks have been gravelled and a water-course made, 
and other needed improvement-. 

Eight burial lots have been sold. 

The improvements needed for the ensuing year: The 
balance of the wall should be pointed. A portion of the lots 
laid out years ago need re-locating, as the stakes then put 
down have decayed and the bounds are obliterated, necessi- 
tating a new survey of that part of the premises, and more 
substantial bounds, and other improvements that may be 
found necessary to keep the premises in good order. 

We therefore respectfully ask for the appropriation of 

•$200, with the proceeds of such sales a- may 'he made from 
the premises the ensuing vear.

Eighteenth Annual Report 



OF THE 



Trustees of Memorial Hall 



For the third time in the history of Memorial Hall the 
name of John Byers, of New York, claims grateful recog- 
nition from the people of Andover. It was hardly to be 
expected that, after having done so much in his lifetime 
for the library, Mr. Byers would still further remember it in 
his bequests. But his large-hearted generosity moved him 
to do so; and by his will five thousand dollars ($5000) 
have been added to our permanent fund for the purchase of 
books. 

The year has otiierwise been uneventful. The Trustees 
would be very glad to abolish the old kerosene lights of the 
Reading-room, and introduce electricity. They have pro- 
cured estimates of the expense which such a change would 
involve, but with discouraging results as related to their 
present income. Some additional appropriation will prob- 
ably be necessary before this most desirable end can be 
attained. 



80 

The annual examination has shown the building and books 
to be in good order.
